Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen expressed his fears after President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered a lifestyle audit to be conducted on all public servants.

 Speaking on Friday, President Uhuru ordered that all the leaders should go through the audit so that they could account for their sources of wealth as a means of fighting corruption.

President Uhuru said that he is ready to take the lead in alongside his Deputy President.

Through his Twitter account, Murkomen said that the audit might expose some of the politicians perceived to own a lot of property in the county.

 "I have only one problem with lifestyle audit. It will expose some of us who are enjoying the perceived status of rich men."We will “lose” our helicopters, high rise buildings, NYS tenders etc. There is nothing a Kenyan voter hates than a poor politician."Just let us fake it till we get it," he wrote .

The President gave the order in Mombasa on Thursday during the opening of the Dongo Kundu bypass .  

He said the politicians who would be found guilty would have to suffer the consequences.
